Sarah Story (BBC Radio 1)

As the new host of BBC Radio 1’s Friday night ‘Future Dance’ show, Sarah Story is carrying on the torch lit by her predecessor and hero Annie Mac. Since starting out in radio at just 14, there's been no stopping this unapologetically bold woman. Her DJ-ing chops and disarming charm have seen her rise from the bottom rungs of the radio ladder right to the top of the industry in an incredibly short time.
